I ran across this very entertaining and funny TED presentation given by Shawn Achor, former award-winning professor and researcher of positive psychology at Harvard University, about how to increase happiness at work. It’s definitely worth a watch. He is hilarious, so you’ll probably be happier, just from watching it!
Shawn Achor makes the case for more happiness at work, but things can change, too. Meaning, sometimes a career or job you once loved, can change. Sometimes, you are the one that has changed.
So, do you pursue your happiness, when it goes away?
Do you seek a better job or position or career or location or relationship or situation, when you discover you are no longer happy in the current one?
Things to contemplate….
Also, this is a great (and concise) article from Huff Post discussing the science behind happiness and offering some good tips for increasing it.
